Here is a video of 4 students that built and programmed this robot on their own. I told them that I wanted to film their robot. I didn't know they were going to speak. Listen closely and you'll here them talking about each motor and its function and how they programmed it to move forward, backwards and strike. You'll here the boy reference the brick which is the small computer that drives drives the different motors. This particular robot has three different motors that make it move and strike.

Constructing a Robots

These are student in Greg Pardo's third grade classroom at Connecticut Farms constructing robots. Once they are complete, they will begin working on programming.
